Fuzzy Rule-Based Estimation of Flood Probabilities under Climatic Fluctuations

Development of a Regional Atmospheric-Hydrologic Model for the Study of Climate Change in California
An integrated model of atmospheric and hydrologic processes at regional scale over California has been developed in order to translate the large scale atmospheric conditions of critical...

Looking for Evidence of Climatic Change in Streamflow Time Series
The principle of stationarity of a streamflow time series has been very commonly assumed in the analysis of hydrologic time series. Some common types of non-stationarity in time series,...

The Effect of Climatic Change on Hydrologic Variables
There has been increasing concern about the threat of global warming affecting the earth's climate. This warming scenario, called the greenhouse effect, is believed to be...

Climate Change: What the North American Water Engineer Should Know
Long-range forecasts of future global warming have been made based on the increase in carbon dioxide and trace gases in the air from human activities. Potential changes which would especially...

Streamflows Prediction Models for the Colombian Generation System Considering El Niño Effect
A monthly and a daily prediction models for some Colombian rivers with hydropower developments were developed and implemented. Several monthly streamfiow prediction models are presented....

Public Attitudes, Behavior, and the Willingness to Sacrifice to Mitigate Uncertain Adversity: Water Management Implications for Climate Change
Although several scholars have touted the emergence of a new environmentalism, many Americans seem to make decisions that do not reflect green thinking. Examples include driving more miles...

Modeling Climate Change Impacts on Water Resources
As part of the Electric Power Research Institute's (EPRI) comprehensive evaluation of the economic effects of climate change in the United States, we have developed methods...

Climate Variability Impact on the Water Resources of Ancient Andean Civilizations
The great ancient empires of South America used corporate irrigated agriculture with centralized control to help hold far-flung domains together. The Inca empire, larger in area than that...

Stormwater Management Plan Updated for Climate System Changes
When large watershed stormwater management plans are updated, climate system change factors due to global warming effects should be considered. Climate system changes may cause changes...

Vulnerability of Water Resources to Global Climate Change in the Agricultural Midwest- Ecological, Economic, and Regulatory Aspects
As climate changes, so will water resources. General climate change will alter the distribution of hydrometeorological events and will affect water use, in turn resulting in further alterations...

Forcing Function and Climate Change
A system framework for investigating the effect of climate change in the upper Rio-Grande river basin, New Mexico, is developed. The forcing function or input into a climate change model...

Integrated Hydrological/Ecological/Economic Modeling for Examining the Vulnerability of Water Resources to Climate Change
A methodology for assessing regional-scale hydrologic vulnerability to climate variability which incorporates ecologic and economic factors is presented. A simple economic model of damages...

Adapting Water Resources of the Canadian Prairies under the impact of Climatic Warming
Given that future droughts could become more frequent and more severe because of climatic warming, this paper discusses some strategies to manage and to develop the water resources of...

Measurement of the DWPF Canistered Wasteform Weight and Free Volume

Flood Management Strategies for the Rhine and Maas Rivers in the Netherlands
This paper addresses the above issues, examines the lessons learned, and emphasizes the shift in attention from society on flood management issues. Special attention is devoted to the...
